About me

I’m a college-made industrial designer, and a self-made fashion designer, illustrator, and surface pattern designer.

I started my journey as a freelance fashion creative seven years ago. With no referrals, with no friends in fashion, with no testimonials. I only had a tiny portfolio and all my passion.

And, from the very moment I got hired as a freelancer for the first time, I realized that nothing can stop someone with passion and determination to do what she loves.

Why did I Create This Course?

Because I believe that life is better when you do fulfilling and meaningful work that feeds your heart.

Because I’m living proof that you can be a self-taught fashion creative, make an impact, create work that you enjoy, be authentic, and make a living.

Because you deserve to do what you love in your own terms, to be proud and confident about what you create, and to have the success you crave for.

What if I’m a beginner?

Perfect! This course has been designed for you! If you don’t know how to give texture to your fashion illustrations and garment sketches, if you don’t know where to start nor how to use your tools and materials, then you are in the right place 😉

What tools do I need?

You will need markers (I use Chartpak), bristol board or soft paper, pencil, eraser, a couple of brushpens (I use Tombow), color pencils, a couple of fineliners, gelly pens (white, silver, and gold), and optionally a ruler and ink pens.

I’ll share a list of materials if you’re on a budget.

Send them directly to my email! –   I’ll be HAPPY to clarify your doubts, and I’ll get back to you asap!
